Evaluating the Efficacy of Behavioral Activation in Depressed Spanish-Speaking Latinos Abstract: Major depressive disorder (MDD) is highly prevalent among U.S. Spanish-speaking Latinos. Although MDD is very treatable, the lack of empirically-supported treatments precludes this population’s access to quality mental health care. Following the promising results of a small open-label pilot study in which we tested the efficacy of Behavioral Activation Treatment for Depression (BATD) in a sample Latinos with Spanish-speaking preference.

Title: Culture-Training Match: Testing the Interaction between Trainee Cultural Background and Training Design on Stress Reactions and Transfer of Training Abstract: This study investigates how trainee cultural background interacts with training structure and error instructions to predict transfer of training. Previous research on training interventions relies largely on Western theories of learning, and few training techniques have been tested with samples outside of North America or Western Europe. The current research seeks to expand these perspectives to investigate the impact of different training interventions in face and dignity cultures, with a particular focus on how cultural differences in stress reactions affect training outcomes. Building on this foundation, I hypothesize that the match between trainee cultural background and training design elements will predict training effectiveness, as measured by training transfer.

Early Experiences, Later Functioning:How and Why a Secure Base Matters Compelling research evidence indicates that secure attachment is linked to a variety of aspects of children’s healthy development. This presentation presents a comprehensive model whereby both cognitive and non-cognitive mechanisms may mediate the link between secure attachment and children’s response to threat, with consideration of long-term and pervasive mental and physical health functioning. A reception with snacks and beverages will be served after the presentation. All undergraduate psychology students are encouraged to join us for the presentation and stay for the reception.
